Boynton Beach Car Accident Lawyer

At Eltringham Law Group, our Boynton Beach car accident attorneys fight aggressively to protect the rights and interests of injured victims. We have extensive experience going up against Florida’s largest insurance companies. 

Our personal injury lawyers can help you file your claim on time, negotiate with your own insurance company for PIP coverage, and sue opposing drivers and at-fault parties. With our help, you and your family can get the compensation you deserve.

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and Boynton Beach Car Accidents

Florida has some unique car accident laws. Unlike the majority of U.S. states, Florida operates under a partial no-fault auto insurance system. Every vehicle owner in Florida is required to obtain and maintain a type of no-fault insurance coverage called personal injury protection (PIP).

If an accident happens, a PIP policy will cover the initial out-of-pocket damages, including medical bills and lost wages. After a car crash in Boynton Beach, your initial claim is made through a PIP policy regardless of who was to blame for the accident. However, this policy may only cover the first $10,000 in damages.

Despite what you might think, your insurance company is not on your side. The company will look out for its own profits and financial interests. We can help. Our Boynton Beach car accident attorneys can help you recover the maximum available compensation through a PIP claim.

When You Can File a Boynton Beach Car Accident Lawsuit

Personal Injury Protection insurance may be sufficient to cover modest medical bills. However, even if you purchased additional PIP coverage, it will almost certainly be insufficient to cover your damages after a serious accident.

If you were involved in a major crash in Boynton Beach, you may be entitled to step outside of the state’s no-fault insurance system and file a lawsuit directly against the responsible defendant.

Florida uses a ‘serious injury’ threshold for fault-based car accident claims. Anyone who suffered a serious and permanent injury in an accident can file a fault-based lawsuit directly against a negligent defendant. You can recover additional financial compensation through this type of claim.

To hold a defendant responsible for a car accident, you need to be ready to present strong, compelling evidence that establishes their fault for the wreck. Our law firm will investigate your crash and help you secure the evidence needed to prove liability.

Defendants in Boynton Beach Car Accident Claims

If you do decide to pursue compensation though a lawsuit, chances are good that the case won’t go to court. Instead, you’ll likely reach a settlement agreement with the at-fault party. However, to make sure you get the compensation you truly deserve, it’s important to identify who all holds responsibility for your injuries.

In a Boynton Beach car crash claim, there can be several different defendants or at-fault parties.

These include:

  • The driver of the opposing vehicle
  • Government organizations (if the driver was working for them at the time)
  • The owner of the opposing vehicle (such as a trucking company)
  • Vehicle or vehicle part manufacturers
  • Alcoholic beverage providers (under Florida’s dram shop law)

Any party that helped cause your accident and subsequent injuries should be held responsible and should pay you compensation. Our Boynton Beach car crash lawyers can help you identify all the at-fault parties so that you get the settlement you need.

Boynton Beach Car Accident Deadlines

Under Florida law, fault-based car accident injury lawsuits are subject to a four-year statute of limitations. Once the statute of limitations expires, you will be prevented from taking legal action. This may seem like plenty of time to take legal action, but evidence can be lost or misplaced if you wait too long to start the claims process.

Beyond the statute of limitations, there are other important deadlines you need to consider as well. Under Florida’s PIP laws, you must seek medical treatment and notify your insurer within 14 days of a crash. Failure to do so could undermine your ability to recover compensation. Do not wait to take action after a crash. 

You Deserve Full and Fair Financial Compensation

Florida allows auto accident victims to claim compensation for economic and non-economic losses. After a car crash, you can claim financial compensation equivalent to the value of your expenses and damages. Sadly, the insurance company is not going to make the claims process easy. 

Even when you are working with your own insurer, you need to remember that these companies are not on your side. Insurance providers want to pay out the lowest amount of money possible. At Eltringham Law Group, our Boynton Beach car accident attorneys fight aggressively to help people maximize their settlement or verdict. This includes:

  • Vehicle repairs and replacement
  • Emergency medical treatment
  • Hospital or medical bills
  • Rehabilitative treatments and therapies
  • Loss of income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disability
  • Permanent scarring
  • Wrongful death
